About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, August 20, 2022.

The best way to know how to help hummingbirds is by doing research and keeping a close eye on their health. Susan Campbell will be trapping, measuring, and tagging hummingbirds at Reedy Creek and you can witness her work up close. Adult participation required if under the age of 18.

Susan is a licensed hummingbird bander and lead hummingbird researcher in North Carolina. She has been working with hummingbirds for over 15 years as a research affiliate with the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

When you enroll you will select a 45-minute slot that will start every hour on the hour from 8 am to 11 am.

Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation follows all CDC guidelines and Governor's orders applicable at the start of the program. If you need an accommodation or modification, please contact Therapeutic and Inclusive Recreation Services at TRInfo@mecknc.gov.
